The Good Samaritan is a moving account told by the Great Physician of a compassionate outsider coming to the aid of a common man who was robbed, beaten, and left for dead. In concluding, Christ urged, “Go and do likewise.” Many healthcare professionals today follow this model of kindness toward those who are most disadvantaged, making service for and empowerment of the forgotten an intentional career commitment. Countless lives are preserved through their ongoing devotion, whether in their home communities or in distant locales.
VALUES OF INMED
- We value all human life. We regard individuals as created and adored by God. We respect the dignity, uniqueness, and intrinsic worth of all – regardless of their wealth, culture, or social status. We encourage these virtues in all of our working relationships with staff, learners, faculty, volunteers, donors, and communities we serve.
- We are committed to the world’s most forgotten. We are called to serve the most marginalized people on earth, to relieve suffering, to facilitate sustainable improvements, and to respect those in need as active participants in their own wellbeing.
- We are stewards. We are managers, not owners, of the resources made available to us. We are efficient, effective, and transparent in our communications and relationships with our learners, partners, communities, and governments.
- We are partners. We actively seek association and cooperation with other people and organizations that share similar values and mission.
